 Plus quan se atque suos amavit omnes, 
nunc.
.
.
- Catullus You were my playmate by the sea.
We swam together.
Your girl's body had no breasts.
We found prawns among the rocks; We liked to feel the sun and to do nothing; In the evening we played games with the others.
It made me glad to be by you.
Sometimes I kissed you, And you were always glad to kiss me; But I was afraid - I was only fourteen.
And I had quite forgotten you, You and your name.
To-day I pass through the streets.
She who touches my arms and talks with me Is - who knows? - Helen of Sparta, Dryope, Laodamia .
.
.
And there are you A whore in Oxford Street.
